ESXi 7.0 - Lots of irrelevant logs send to Syslog Server
I have set syslog configuration in ESXi to send log to syslog server. I have set the syslog log filtering level to "error".
Syslog.global.logLevel = error
Based on my understanding of the setting of Syslog.global.logLevel, the server should not send any log other than "error" level to the syslog server.
However, there are still many logs of "hostd", "vpxa" and "rhttpproxy" comes to the syslog server and most of them are "Local4.Debug" and "Local4.Info".
Please see the sample below:
